Renowned for wine-growing since the Middle Ages and hailed as the cradle of the Gewurztraminer grape, the Tramin (Termeno) area lies close to Lago di Caldaro in the south Tyrol region of northern Italy’s Alto Adige and boasts an enviable cooperative of grape growers. Bright yellow with coppery reflections in the glass, this richly-styled Pinot Grigio from low-yielding vineyards positively blossoms with aromas of pear, citrus, honeysuckle, tropical fruits and light spices. Firm and velvety on the palate, try it with fish antipasti, risotto with asparagus, omelets and pasta.
Technical notes
Location of Vineyard Among the northernmost vineyards in Italy, the 620 acres that provide grapes for the Tramin winery are located in Alto Adige, better known to its mostly German-speaking inhabitants as the Sudtirol. These vines grow in an exquisite, high-walled glacial valley that protects them from the northern cold and traps the sun”s warmth. The winery itself is located on the Wine Route (Strada di Vino/Weinstrasse) in the commune of Termeno - or Tramin in German - a few miles south of the provincial capital Bolzano (Bozen) and 60 miles from the Austrian border. Approximately 37 acres of Tramin”s vineyards are currently cultivated using organic and biodynamic principles. Varietal Composition 100% Pinot Grigio

A native of Termeno, he is deeply tied to its culture and people, which can be seen in his work. A professional of uncommon depth and focus, Willi cultivates a balance of traditional winemaking with the use of modern technology and deep expertise, which has resulted in great success for Tramin. Wolfgang Klotz overseas sales and marketing, and managers the winery with Willi Sturz.

Food pairing

Producer
Located in the heart of Alto Adige in the town of Termeno on the south side of the Alps, Tramin comprises of one of the oldest networks of farmers forming a winery. Rich in tradition, Tramin”s wines are authentic expressions of a unique terroir, supported by a common philosophy of hard work, dedication, confidence and creativity among all participating members. Tramin operates on a human scale with a farmer-to-land ratio similar to that of a small estate, allowing for delicate hand-harvesting. A unique architectural landmark that blends in among its natural surroundings was designed for Cantina Tramin”s new headquarters in 2010, combining a modern structure with the original cellar. When viewed from outside, the building is striking for its curves, while the interior is a well-planned winery with dedicated areas for cellar workers and visiting wine enthusiasts. Designed by leading Italian architect Tscholl Werner, the building is located on the exact footprint of the original cellar so as not to sacrifice any land from the surrounding vineyards. Founded in 1898 by Pastor Christian Schrott, Tramin now boasts 270 members across approximately 620 acres in the communities of Tramin, Neumarkt, Montan and Auer. The town of Tramin - the German name for Termeno - is home to the aromatic grape, Gewurztraminer. The Traminer grape (as it is affectionately called here) is one of the oldest in the world and boasts a noble lineage. In fact, recent studies show that it is the ancestor of some of the oldest grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling, and Pinots Blanc, Gris and Noir. At Cantina Tramin, the Traminer grape grows in the subzone of Sella, a terroir that”s particularly suited to Gewurztraminer; hence the name of the winery, Cantina Tramin.
